A pivotal moment in Japanese history, the Honnoji Incident was the assassination of ruling daimyo Oda Nobunaga in 1582. On the morning of June 21st as Nobunaga was taking rest at Honnoji Temple in Kyoto, a large force lead by one of his most trusted generals, Akechi Mitsuhide took control and completely razed the site of the famed temple. Oda's body was never found and to this day the true intentions of Mitsuhide's betrayal are still a mystery.
The incident was the turning point of the Sengoku Era. Oda at the time was the only clan leader to have come close to conquering Japan in its entirety in 100 years. In the immediate aftermath, Mitsuhide attacked Oda's Azuchi castle while at the same time sending a messenger to the Mori clan in an attempt at seeking an alliance against Oda's successor Toyotomi Hideyoshi. However, Toyotoshi managed to intercept the messenger and ended up forming his own alliance with the Mori clan. It is said that following this numerous alliances were formed with former warring clans and Mitsuhide was eventually killed by bandits following the defeat at the Battle of Yamazaki, just 11 days after he had assumed control as Shogun of Japan.
